Dodgers Video: Fan Records Himself While Catching Home Run Ball

Dodger Stadium

While not as exciting as catching a home run ball hit by one of the Los Angeles Dodgers players, catching a home run from the opposing team at Dodger Stadium is a big moment for any fan. Perhaps even more exciting is catching it all on film.

In the top of top of the fourth inning in a game between the Dodgers and Arizona Diamondbacks, Aaron Hill hit a home run into the left field pavilion. A fan by the name of Bobby Crosby, a popular YouTuber also known as Dodgerfilms, was there to catch the ball.

With his glove on one hand and a video camera in the other, Crosby made the catch and promptly apologized to left fielder Scott Van Slyke:

Crosby is a season ticket holder with the Dodgers and shows up early to every game to catch home runs during batting practice, but he was lucky enough to catch one in a game. The catch even caught Vin Scully’s attention shortly after:

Although this home run put the Dodgers down 4-3, they recovered in the seventh and eighth innings to win the game 6-4. Hill’s home run was not the only ball Crosby caught that night. During batting practice, he was able to snag homers hit by Jimmy Rollins and Van Slyke.

Crosby has been recording Dodger games for eight seasons now and always sits in the left field pavilion. So, if you have seats in left field, be sure to show up early to see Dodger Films in action during batting practice.

  1. I would strongly suggest that if your a Dodger fan that you run yourself to Utube and watch Dodgerfilms videos. They are very educational, fun and entertaining. Him and his cohorts really make them worth watching. They are the best videos of the Dodgers I have seen to date. It also takes some of the hurt away with not being able to watch the games. Keep it up Dodgerfilms! THANK YOU….
